Using a template makes it possible to have a certain set up multiple times on many pages and makes it easier to change it without visiting all those pages again. It also is very useful to move things around, like the Main Page is build up in many templates which makes it easier to make a new set up. Some of these templates are even changing every day automatically, like the Featured Video on the Main Page. So it is very useful to get to know more about them.
